      mr-veg,

      What a perfect hub! I was a little afraid that I'd be lost here, with a lot of unfamiliar ingredients; but you've made it fool proof! I love that you've included all those pictures! This actually sounds good and I love trying new things, so I'll be giving this one a try. The kids and I love all kinds of breads and this should be a hit! By the way, I think it's so awesome when a man is not afraid of the kitchen! Super big thumbs up!
